    Opulence and luxury lead the way for Railbookers over the last year as it records a 46 percent jump in bookings featuring luxury rail, compared to the same time period one year earlier.

    These journeys highlight the natural scenery that can only be viewed from a train car, while allowing passengers to relax and indulge in comfortable seating and accommodations, often times accompanied by gourmet food and drink.
